Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2833) GeoNames webservice Update Processor
Date Fri, 14 Oct 2011 14:36:12 GMT

Chris A. Mattmann commented on SOLR-2833:
-----------------------------------------

Just to comment back on this too:

My current processor talks directly to Geonames.org, with caching of requests. This mode is
good for development and testing, but for production I imagine that the backend could be configurable
to either geonames.org webservice or local solr core. Comments?

Cool yah, that's a good idea. The thing is, the easiest way for us was just to take geonames
dumps (text files which we have on a bunch of our projects) and then as a first step index
them in Solr creating our "geonames-aware" index. Then, this can be used during qparsing to
allow those types of queries. I didn't want to go live to geonames.org b/c the site bandwidth
might be an issue, and sometimes also we're working behind firewalls and stuff.

This should probably go in its own contrib module, where other geonames stuff by Mattmann
& co could also go.
